Leah Crews Castleman, coach of the No. 23 Georgetown College women's soccer team, continues to round out her fall 2016 recruits. The veteran coach adds three more, looking to improve upon the stellar season of 2015 where the Tigers were ranked and stayed in the Top 25 for most of the season.
"We have an amazing recruiting class for 2016 – possibly one of our most talented groups," Castleman said. "They will come in and challenge the upperclassmen for minutes, which is important for fostering a competitive atmosphere. We will have tremendous depth in 2016, and I look forward to seeing all of these girls in the mix right away."
Josey Sobolewski, Keri O'Toole and Carlie Molique are the newest Tiger signees.
Georgetown College women's soccer recently wrapped up one of the best seasons in program history and with her first 2016 signee coach Leah Crews Castleman hopes to continue to see her team continue to build upon that foundation
Cleome Kerseg is a midfielder from Half Moon Bay, Calif. She is a four-year starter for her high school and received second-team Peninsula Athletic League honors as a junior.
"Cleome attended my summer ID camp this past July where she performed extremely well," Castleman said. "I think she will bring a spark of energy to our midfield where we are losing senior standout Ariel Howell.
"Cleome is a very technical player with great vision and speed. She brings tremendous athleticism and is dominant in the air, which is key to running the midfield at this level. I am excited to add her to my roster for 2016."
Georgetown College women's soccer's wait is over. Monday afternoon the NAIA office announced the 2015 pairings for the upcoming 31-team format tournament. One team receives a bye in the opening round played at host sites this Saturday.
The Tigers (13-3-3) finished the year ranked No. 22 with losses to No. 1 Lindsey Wilson College and twice to Campbellsville University which was ranked No. 16 and No. 15 at the times of those contests. Both those teams are in the upcoming tournament.
Georgetown played five double-overtime matches and one overtime match for a 3-0-3 mark in those games. The team started out winning six straight, a program best under coach Leah Crews Castleman.
Georgetown College women's soccer turned away opportunity after opportunity in the Mid-South Conference semifinals. Unfortunately, No. 15 Campbellsville University made the No. 20 Tigers (13-3-3) pay in the 78th minute.
It was the lone score of the game as CU (18-1) advances to next week's finals against Lindsey Wilson College. This finishes Georgetown's run at a conference title, but with a No. 20 ranking now must sit and wait to see if they get an at-large bid for the upcoming national tournament and continue the 2015 season.
Calm under pressure is certainly a title this 2015 Georgetown College women's soccer team has earned. The No. 20 Tigers (13-2-3) needed overtime with their season on the line in the quarterfinals of the Mid-South Conference tournament. Nothing new for the team that played five double overtime affairs, four in a row, winning two and tying the other three.
GC answered the call again, knocking off St. Catharine College (8-11) with a Sarah Hencke goal just more than four minutes into the first overtime.
"We had great chances all night and couldn't get one to go," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "But we continued to persevere as we have done all season. Teams always play their best at tournament so I don't want to take anything away from St. Catharine, they played a great game."
